Carfection – Audi RS 6 Performance vs Mercedes-AMG E63 S

[words: Bill Cho, video and stills: Carfection] It's been awhile since we posted a video so when this one popped up, resistance was futile. So let me start by saying...yes, I know we don't get any iteration of the RS 6 here in the States. Yes, I know this is Audi Club North America so why am I posting cars that we can't get...yet. Carfection recently got their hands on an Audi RS 6 Performance and a Mercedes-AMG E63 S. They didn't do a 'normal' comparison that involved drag races no...

[words: Bill Cho, video: Autocar] As we head into the weekend, let us take in the glory that is this ridiculous (but awesome) drag race: Audi R8 V10 vs Ducati Panigale V4.

Auto Express- Audi R8 RWS vs Porsche 911 GT3: Which Is Fastest In The Wet?

[video: Auto Express] Well, that didn't take long. Auto Express put the new Audi R8 RWS against the Porsche 911 GT3 in a very wet drag race. Normally, the wet conditions would be no problem for the R8 V10 but remember, this one is rear wheel drive. How will it fare against its corporate rival?

This One Time… at Rally Galicia…

Given it's Monday, and that's the appropriate time for everyone to share what they did over the weekend, we found ourselves highly entertained by a video we found posted over on Facebook. Our stage is Rally Galicia, and our star is a box-flared Audi 80 sedan blasting down a gravel road. Air ensues. Think he lands it? Watch below. https://www.facebook.com/Golovachuk.Vitalii/videos/1801798886546395/UzpfSTExNTg4Mjk2NjI6MTE4MDc0MDM5ODczNDgwNQ/

Teaser Video of the Q8…in Glowing Tape

[source: Audi AG] Editor's note: Audi has released both a teaser video and a longer video of their new flagship SUV. We ran spy photos of the Q8 from Motor1.com and the SQ8 from Motor Trend  earlier this year. The Q8 is expected to launched this summer and is positioned above the Q7. The new Audi Q8 is still top secret - a challenge for the Audi design team, to give a little first glimpse of the first and largest SUV luxury coupe. In order not to reveal too much, the designers tu...

2018 New York International Auto Show – Audi Sport Pre-Night Event Video and RS 5 Sportback Videos

words: Bill Cho, videos: Audi of America The night before the New York International Auto Show, Scott Keogh, Audi of America president, and Michael-Julius Renz, CEO of Audi Sport, introduced two new models, the R8 V10 RWS and the RS 5 Sportback. We broadcasted their speeches live on the Audi Club North America Facebook page but in case you missed it (and admittedly the video was a little shaky), Audi has released their speeches and also footage of the RS 5 Sportback going through ...

Drag Race: Audi RS 5 vs BMW M4 Competition Pack

words: Bill Cho, video: Cars.co.za It's been awhile since we visited the guys at Cars.co.za. Last time, they dragged an RS 3 against a BMW M2. This time, they're pitting the RS 3's bigger brother against the M2's bigger brother. How does the RS 5 do against its rival? Will the race be close or a run away? What do you think? [embed]https://youtu.be/mpacFPnD3kI[/embed]

Teaser: The New Audi A6

words: Bill Cho, video: Audi Germany Audi Germany's YouTube channel released a teaser video for the new A6 which is expected to be debuted in March at the Geneva Motor Show. When I saw 'teaser', that's exactly what this video is. The video is 25 seconds long but you only catch glimpses of the grill, dash, and exterior. Total amount of screen time for the A6 is probably 3 seconds long. The A6 Avant, sedan, and the S6 Avant have been photographed during testing here and here if yo...

ABT Sportsline Press Release on Jon Olsson’s RS 6+ With More Photos and Daniel Abt’s Video

words: Bill Cho & ABT Sportsline, photos: ABT Sportsline It never fails. I look for something and can't find it so I go out and buy a new something. As soon as I get home and take it out of its package, I find the old something. In this case, I had to do screen grabs of Jon Olsson's YouTube video of his new RS 6+ for the article (Jon Olsson and ABT Sportsline Team Up for Project Phoenix – RS 6+ Avant) posted earlier today. Within minutes of publishing that article, I get the pres...

Jon Olsson and ABT Sportsline Team Up for Project Phoenix – RS 6+ Avant

words: Bill Cho, video: Jon Olsson Today, Jon Olsson is a happy man. A couple of years ago, he wasn't. In October 2015, his old RS 6 was stolen at gunpoint from its new owner and was discovered burned to the ground. From this: to this: As Jon said in his Instagram post from that day, who would do such a thing? But back to today. Jon posted a YouTube video of him picking up his new RS 6 Avant. A new RS 6 would have been fantastic enough but it being Jon, he couldn't leave ...

Video: B9 RS 4 Meets Its Grandaddy…the B5 RS 4

words: Bill Cho, video and photos: Auditography Them lucky sons o' guns. Auditography scores again with this very unique pairing. He took a new RS 4 Avant and had a photoshoot with his very own B5 RS 4. Since he was only borrowing the new RS 4, he was told to be gentle with it so no RS 4 vs RS 4 races. Auditography more than made up for it with his always beautiful photography of the meeting of the giants. Watch the video below and don't forget to visit his Facebook page fo...

Video: Audi Miniatures Invade Baqueira Beret

words: Bill Cho, photos and video: Audi Spain Baqueira Beret is a beautiful ski resort located in the Spanish Pyrenees. Audi España sponsors the Quattro Era Baishada, a race that features both downhill skiing and snowboarding. If you were fortunate enough to be at the ski resort on February 10 and 11, Audi hid scale models of their vehicles all over the ski resort. And by "hid" I mean they placed them in easily visible places. Worst game of Hide N Seek ever but the prizes were fan...

Aural Nirvana: 700 HP 2013 TT RS plus

words: Bill Cho, video: Cars with Luke You'll notice something different about this 2013 TT RS plus in the latest video by YouTuber Cars with Luke.  Clad in a body kit reminiscent of the TT RS VLN Racecar complete with canards, louvres, and induction hood, it certainly looks the part but does it have the same power to back up the looks? The original TT RS VLN Racecar had 380hp, 390 lb/ft of torque and was FWD. This full quattro TT RS has 800 hp on a good day but on the day of fi...

Video: Audi UK Cools Down with the RS 4 Avant

words: Bill Cho, video: Audi UK They say silence is golden and at first, this video may seem silent since there is no dialogue. But listen carefully and you'll find it golden. From the engine fan to the sizzling brakes, this RS 4 Avant has been driven hard but won't go to bed quietly. Audi UK brings us this cool ad of the vehicle that we in the States want (real bad) but probably won't get. So we just have to be satisfied with these videos and if they are as good as this one, I'm ok wi...

Drag Race: Porsche Boxster vs…B9 allroad?

words: Bill Cho, video: The Fast Lane Car I've seen some odd drag races like the SQ7 vs Ford Focus RS but this one might take the cake. The Fast Lane Car drags a 2018 allroad against a 2006 Porsche Boxster. Obviously it's not a serious race and the guys are just having some fun. The Porsche has a 236hp 199b-ft flat six with RWD and a 5 speed manual transmission. The allroad is a 252hp 273 lb-ft 2.0 liter turbo with quattro and a 7 speed S tronic transmission but it weighs 3,825 lbs...al...

Audi C7 RS 6 performance…Sedan

words: Bill Cho, photos and video: Auditography When Audi gives you a C7 RS 6 performance Avant, you make a C7 RS 6 performance sedan? That's precisely what Alex did. He took a brand new 2017  S6 sedan and transformed it into an RS 6 performance with all the parts from an RS 6 performance Avant. This Warsaw resident wanted something he couldn't have like the nutty Americans in our Find of the Day: A6 Avant to S6 Avant. Actually the man who made that S6 Avant is also from eastern Europe. ...
